The exhibit runs April 5 through May 3, 2014.

In his first solo exhibition, Baltimore based painter Bobby Coleman deconstructs objects, symbols, and colors found within the urban landscape into a deeply layered composition that echoes the chaos and visual noise he encounters in his daily life.

Each element is a recalled visual memory, simplified into line, color, or form. These elements are then expanded and built upon acting as a recalled memory often does, clouded and recontextualized over time. Simplicity gives way to an ordered chaos of overlapping and often interconnected trains of thought. Each thought affects each other in a growing complex composition.

While at first look Coleman’s images appear chaotic and haphazard, they are ordered and systematic in the way our consciousness weeds out visual impulses. Since we cannot pay attention to everything all the time, filtration occurs and details are lost. Coleman takes that filtration and processes its significance. He rebuilds it in a way it can be remembered and in the process creates a new interpretation, one that reorganizes his response to experience.
